effort of the news media to get republicans to fight each other. >> newt gingrich is very proud of this don't say mean things idea he's got this year. right? his idea that all the republican candidates should stick together and get along and have a super friendly, no going negative type primary. last month in an interview with yahoo! news, mr. gingrich bragged about this as a strategy, saying, quote, watch the way in which i'm methodically not getting engaged in a fight with my friends. this past weekend in iowa, mr. gingrich again talked up this n negatives republican strategy. >> we'll not engage in negative ads. we're not going to engage in tearing people down. we should have a positive campaign on the republican side. >> sadly, the newt gingrich happy republican plan started to unravel that very same night. during that night's republican debate when he let this little negativity slip his lips. >> let's be candid. the only reason you didn't become a career politician is because you lost to teddy kennedy in 1994. >> wait a second. wait a second. that's -- now, wait a second. >
to be a rather bumpy road to the republican presidential nomination this year. today newt gingrich's new political director in the great state of iowa agreed to resign. he agreed to resign after word got out he had called mormonism a cult. mormonism, of course, is the faith of mitt romney. mr. gingrich's primary competitor for the party's nomination at this point as well as long-shot candidate jon huntsman, the former governor of utah. a gingrich campaign spokesman saying the mormonism was a cult comment was, quote, inconsistent with newt's 2012 pledge to run a positive and solutions orientated campaign. he does say orinetated. i'd say oriented. potato, potato. maybe he's british. he's been saying the key to the republicans beating president obama in the general election is the republican primary should be conducted in a positive fashion. no republican on republican fighting, mr. gingrich says. no negative ads. smiles, everyone. smiles. back in september, back when mr. gingrich was polling in the single digits, he refused to answer a policy question at one debate. on the grounds that him
. nailing newt. newt gingrich is finding out what it means to be the front-runner. he's under siege. romney is for changing positions and religions. now, a pastor is calling newt the kim kardashian of the gop and attacking his serial marriages and conversion to catholicism. they are going ballistic. republican voters are falling for newt. he can counter punch. the supporters are betting he can survive the onslaught. are they right? there aren't many house republicans that endorse newt gingrich. we'll talk about his chances of winning iowa. jack kingston joins us tonight. jumping trump. huntsman, paul, romney, perry and bachmann all passed. only gingrich and santorum are in. did they lose a ring master? the defense against republican charges proves if you underestimate this president, do so at your peril. let me finish with a line that may be a guide to gingrich. we start with newt gingrich under siege. can he be stopped? chuck todd and john harris. we have the heavy hitters. her's the question. nationwide, gingrich is at 36, way ahead of where romney has been nationally. romney below that 2
everything else. was it newt gingrich's vast air time on fox and prime time debating that took him to the top, to those real-time television images that overcome the years of nasty shenanigans? hi, i'm chris matthews. welcome to the show. with us today, major garrett, cnn's gloria borger, nbc's kelly o'donnell and "the washington post," david ignatius. for at least three years the obama campaign team has been gaming the re-election battle against mitt romney. we'll try to spot some of the inexplicable reasons later in the show. all the polls show republican voters favor newt gingrich to lead them into battle. one poll broadened it, looking forward to the november election. it found gingrich running very close to romney in a head-to-head with the president. in ohio a must-win state for republicans, this is striking. obama now trails romney, but obama also trails gingrich, 42-43. very close between myth and newt in those hypothetical general election battles. in florida, not quite that close. obama trails romney by three, but he beats gingrich by just two points. in pennsylvania, better for oba
getting american troops back to iraq. newt gingrich has given romney-esque mixed signals on this, but he, too, slams what he calls an accelerated withdrawal from iraq as "promoting dangerous regional dynamics." even jon huntsman says bringing the troops home from iraq is, quote quote, a mistake. ron paul is the only republican presidential candidate in fave of the iraq war ending as it is now. all the other republicans want the iraq war to go on for longer. they all expressed their unease with the iraq war ending right now. it seems remarkable to me. this seems like kind of a big deal given how much distance today's republican wants to put between themselves and george w. bush. between themselves and specifically the most salient think about the george w. bush presidency. the most controversial thing about the george w. bush presidency. the thing that will be in the top line of his obituary at the end of his long, healthy and happy life. aside from ron paul, they are all saying after 8 1/2 years that the war ought to keep on going, do not end the war. keep the troops there. do not bring
to the latest poll numbers showing newt gingrich soaring to the top in the critical state of iowa. according to the new nbc maris poll, gingrich leads the pack with 26% support. mitt romney lags eight points behind at 18%. gingrich is second with 23 in new hampshire. that's higher than in october. his momentum is growing. just moments ago, gingrich arrived to a mob scene at trump tower here in new york. the two of them are due to speak to reporters at any time now. nbc news deputy political director joins me to talk approximate this. >> mark, is this the next step in the process here? everybody has to go at some point to be anointed by donald trump in a new york meeting and mute is the next one on board? >> it seems that's the case. newt gingrich is meeting with donald trump and donald trump has met with almost all the republican presidential candidates, including mitt romney, rick perry, michele bachmann. the list goes on. donald trump, since he first started flirting with the presidential bid in the spring of 2011, has almost represented the very personal in your face style type of politic
in a new york meeting and mute is the next one on board? >> it seems that's the case. newt gingrich is meeting with donald trump and donald trump has met with almost all the republican presidential candidates, including mitt romney, rick perry, michele bachmann. the list goes on. donald trump, since he first started flirting with the presidential bid in the spring of 2011, has almost represented the very personal in your face style type of politics we've seen in the republican party. very anti-obama. it does seem that donald trump giving a candidate blessing is almost an i am pra mature on that type of politics. >> most importantly, newt gingrich was one of the first people to sign on to the debate also rick santorum. ron paul and jon huntsman are not on board i understand. how important is that? does that play into this meeting? newt is on board. for that debate. excuse me. >> there are a couple of ways to look at it. one, newt gingrich, saying he's going to participate in the debate is trying to solidify all the tea party support around him. that donald trump, even if he gets herm
's republican debate in iowa was a brawl, and newt gingrich took the hardest hit. michele bachmann gave the frontrunners a new name. >> if you look at "newt romney," they were for "obamacare"... >> he's been on different positions on so many issues. >> i've always kind of been of the opinion that if you cheat on your wife, you'll cheat on your business partner. >> schieffer: gingrich did not take it lying down. >> the only reason you didn't become a career politician is you lost to teddy kennedy in 1994. >> schieffer: mitt romney is betting big on himself, and left no doubt about it. >> i'll tell you what. $10,000? $10,000 bet? >> i'm not in the betting business. >> schieffer: in a time when many are out of work, will romney regret that? bet you the comics don't. they were already having a field day. >> that's what's so crazy. republicans are up newt creek without a paddle. >> schieffer: believe it or not, gingrich was already flexing his muscles for "newsweek". michele bachmann, who was on the stage last night, is up early this morning to tell us why she hopes it won't be gingrich. and
. mitt romney and newt gingrich. or as i keep saying newt romney and mitt gingrich. if i do that on air tonight, i'm sorry. i keep doing it in the office. it's embarrassing. the thing emerging as the biggest hurdle to newt gingrich getting the nomination is the establishment wing of the republican party. today this came out into the open. there are people in the republican establishment willing to voice concerns or out right opposition to mr. beginning risch in recent weeks. today the flood gates opened. conservative columnist david brooks at "the new york times," quote, he has every negative character trait conservatives associate with 1960s excess. narcissism, self-righteousness, self-indulgence and intemperance. he would severely damage conservatism in the republican party if nominated. former reagan speechwriter, peggy noonan, writing in "the wall street journal," quote, those who know him fear or hope he'll be true to form in one respect. you he'll continue to lose to his number one longtime foe, newt gingrich. he is is a human hand grenade who walks around with his hand on the pin
. john king is off tonight. you'll see it here first. mitt romney's campaign responds to newt gingrich's cnn interview and his accusation that romney does not have the courage to debate one-on-one or defend his campaign's negative ads. >>> also -- gingrich says he won't vote for ron paul if the texas congressman wins the republican nomination. >>> plus -- a frightening day at country's biggest shopping mall and nothing to keep from happening the a mall near you. >>> first in iowa, the skating criticism newt gingrich levelled at two of his republican opponents, mitt romney and ron paul. just a short time ago wolf blitzer asked gingrich about the barrage of attack ads both romney and paul are running in iowa. republican voters caucus exactly one week from tonight. listen to some of what newt gingrich had to say about mitt romney. >> mitt romney made fun of you today. i don't know if you heard. >> no. >> about the virginia snafu and all of that. i'll play the clip, watch this. >> okay. >> you know, i -- i think you compare that to pearl harbor. i think it's more like lucille ball at the c
. >>> tonight, an exclusive interview with the new front-runner. no, not newt gingrich. we've got elizabeth warren. >> let's go to newt versus romney. >> yeah. >> romney unloaded today. >> mitt romney has no time to lose. they are turning the fire hose on newt. >> in florida, gingrich also beat romney by 23 points. >> a lot of the tea party people are for mitt romney. >> gingrich has made the calculations so far that romney is still having a difficult time with tea party supporters. >> newt gingrich over obama in ohio in a head to head match up, 43-42. that is a heart attack. >> that is mind bending. >> conservatives like mitt romney. >> gingrich on top in iowa with 33% support among likely caucus goers. >> gingrich is not the only front-runner, he's eroded romney's electability. >> this is clearly a statement from the american people and has less to do with newt gingrich than it does with the state of american politics. >> newt gingrich has an argument against obama that is entirely based on hatred. >> i have one opponent, barack obama, and that's how my campaign is going to keep moving fo
to be populated almost entirely by d.c. lobbyists. with all the most recent polls showing newt gingrich either far out ahead or in the state where romney is holding on, gingrich rising fast. herman cain now completely out of the race with less than a month to go before voting in the iowa caucuses. on a night like this in washington, the republican field is starting to appear settled. the front-runner position may change. mr. romney may yet come back. somebody else may yet have a late surge. mr. gingrich may yet fall apart. with this little time left before the voting starts, we know effectively what role each of the republican candidates has had in the primary process. not just what they offer as a presidential choice for republican voters but what purpose they serve for us as a whole country watching the republican party trying to make this internal decision about who that party wants to nominate for president. among these primary candidates, we now know what everybody's role is, what everybody is here for. mitt romney is the only real nonsurprise in the group. mitt romney is and has always been
interesting. newt gingrich spoke first. >> which is amazing with an egothe size of trumps, the battle between the two. i think there was some general thinking that with the exit of herman cain maybe the self-promoting behavior would take a back seerkt but enter donald trump. >> it doesn't get worse than that. a new poll finds that an endorsement from donald trump could actually hurt a republican candidate. 39% of people in new hampshire and 34% of people in iowa would be less likely to vote for a candidate endorsed by trump. this is how 2k07b8d trump responds speaking with chuck todd. >> it depends on how the question's asked. i know a lot about polls. i studied polls at the wharton school of finance. i think you believe somebody is worse off because i endorse them. >> also joining the panel to talk about the supersized self-confidence -- that's a big mouthful, is alan lichtman a presidential historian. i am looking at this field thinking how can -- we know that it takes a certain amount of let's say self-confidence to run for president. historically speaking doesn't this current field seem t
last night watching the debate. you're a social conservative but when newt gingrich's three marriages came up all the other candidates just jumped right on it. you did not make any direct criticism or reference to him about that. i just wonder why that was. >> well, i was asked a question about character and what that meant for the presidency of the united states. i went back to what the founders said, and the founders said we needed to focus on their character. that was my response. >> schieffer: so do you think that is an important issue? and should be an issue out there on the table? his marriages? >> i think it's one that voters will take a look at because they want to know who the person is, what the measure of the man or the woman is. i'm sure that that will be a factor as well. >> schieffer: you know, in an interview that president obama did with steve kroft this week, it's going to be seen tonight on "60 minutes," the president said he thought all you republican candidates were alike. listen to this. >> it doesn't really matter who the nominee is is going to be. the core philo
ideas. "inside week on washington" front runner newt gingrich. mitt romney feeling the heat. >> he is a lifelong politician. >> herman cain is on the ropes. barney frank calling it quits. >> i do not choose to run for congress in 2012. >> also, joe biden in iraq as the troops prepare to leave. >> i am running for office. >> who is this guy, can we trust him? >> and is this a great season for campaign ads or what? >> we do not always see eye to eye. >> no, but we agree, our country must take action to address climate change. >> newt gingrich says i was only one in the room who do not know i was dead. soaring in the polls, he received the endorsement of the conservative manchester union leader. the same newt gingrich's campaign staff walked off the job in june. the same nuking bridge mark shields has characterized as carry more baggage than united van lines. here is newt gingrich this week in south carolina. >> i have a long record of persistence. i ran twice and lost. i spent 16 years here. i thought it was better for the house that is what a free society is all about. >> i have a v
frontrunner. and republicans pile on. >> newt gingrich is a product of that same washington who participated in the excesses of our broken and polarized political system. >> after he left congress, freddie mac paid gingrich at least $1.6 million. >> i was way down here and now i'm up here so i know you can go way back down here. gwen: but they're still attacking the incumbent. >> as president, i'll end obama's war on religion. >> president obama has adopted an appeasement strategy. appeasement betrays a lack of faith in america, in american strength, and in america's future. gwen: the president was striking back. >> ask osama bin laden and the 22 out of 30 top al qaeda leaders who have been taken off the field whether i engage in appeasement or whoever is left out there. ask them about that. gwen: the first voting is only weeks away. are we seeing a race to the top or to the bottom? covering the week in politics, charles babington of the associated press, major garrett of "national journal." john harwood of cnbc and "the new york times." and alexis simendinger of real clear politics. >> awar

. leading off tonight, nailing newt. newt gingrich is finding out what it means to be the front-runner. newt's under siege from rivals like mitt romney and rick perry. perry's hitting him for his three marriages, believe it or not, and romney's hitting him for changing positions, and religions. and now a conservative pastor out in iowa who's backing santorum is running a video calling newt the kim kardashian of the gop, and also attacking his serial marriages and his conversion to catholicism. with two debates in the next seven days, the attacks against gingrich are going ballistic. but republican voters are falling for newt, because they see him as a gladiator. he can counterpunch, and his supporters are betting he can survive the onslaught. are they right? >>> then, there aren't that many house republicans who endorse newt gingrich, but we'll talk to one of them about his chances -- newt's chances of winning iowa. georgia congressman jack kingston. he joins us tonight. >>> and dumping trump. that debate donald trump wanted to host has been rejected by count them, five republican presidenti
